The Skatepark Project

To-date, nearly 700 recipients of grants from The Skatepark Project have opened their skateparks. These parks receive more than 8-million visits annually by youth who benefit from the active lifestyle and camaraderie the facilities promote.”

Founded by Tony Hawk, The Skatepark Project (TSP) is a nonprofit organization working to increase access to outdoor recreation and free play through the creation of safe and inclusive community skateparks. TSP provides the resources, advocacy skills, grants and fellowship programs that guide skaters in creating their own community skateparks, from conception through construction. This is a collaborative process between skaters and city authorities to invest in capital improvements that will enrich a community for decades.

The Skatepark Project’s grant programs have awarded $13 million to help fund nearly 700 public skateparks in all 50 States, enjoyed by an estimated 8-million people annually. The organization’s International Program has provided technical and financial support to assist youth through the Skateistan educational programs in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa.
